Chaumont, the one-time residence of the Counts of Champagne, now a town focused on the present with the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival, and on the future with the planned "Between Champagne and Burgundy" national park, houses a fully refurbished hotel with contemporary design. Ideally located on the road to Langres near the banks of the Marne and Suize, the Etoile d'Or not only hosts conferences but is also an outstandingly comfortable stopover place for a weekend of relaxation and history. Just opposite the hotel: swimming pool in summer with slide and wading pool. Possibility of hiking, horseback riding or mountain-biking (with reservation). Guided tour of Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises a half hour away.
